Nevada DMV Teen Requirements

Nevada Teen Driver Laws

To obtain a driver’s license, any new driver under age 18 must:

  • Complete a 15-hour driver’s education classroom course (minimum enrollment age is 15). Safe Driving School recommends taking driver’s education prior to taking the written test, as this will help the student pass the written test.
  • Young drivers can obtain an instruction (learner’s) permit at age 15½. You must present proof of your identity and Nevada residential address, and a certificate of Attendance (DMV 301) must be completed by the principal or other school official.
  • Complete a minimum of 6 hours behind the wheel with a driving school.
  • Complete 50 hours of behind the wheel experience. 10 of those hours must be at nighttime.
  • Keep a log of the dates and times on the official DMV Beginning Driver Experience Log (Form DLD-130), or on the RoadReady mobile application. Submit the completed form or the printed RoadReady log at the skills test.
  • You will receive a certificate of completion. Most insurance companies will give you discounted rates when you present the certificate to your agent.
  • Student must be 16 years of age and have held an instruction permit for a minimum of six months.
  • Pass the driving skills test.
